Booknews
Hyman (philosophy, The Queen's College, Oxford) examines the relationship between vision and painting in order to root out certain philosophical confusions that are embedded in the historiography of western art, and then to reexamine the invention of artificial perspective in 15th century Florence and the inception of naturalism in 5th century Athens.
